In this Mario Kart session, you and your team will race to stake your claim on the dark side of the moon!

Gear up for a high-speed race across the lunar landscape, manoeuvring through rugged terrain while dodging pesky craters.

Under the guidance of experienced game masters from Space Jump, participants will discover the significance of strategy, teamwork and adaptability as they conquer a range of game challenges. Combining the exhilaration of Mario Kart with the excitement of a lunar expedition, this program promises an unforgettable gaming experience.

Prepare to rev your engines, fasten your anti-gravity belt and journey to the dark side of the moon in this high-octane gaming adventure!

During this drop and leave program, participants will:

  • Work in teams to brainstorm, create and build racetracks inspired by a lunar landscape 
  • Get creative with arts and crafts to decorate their lunar racetracks.
  • Race augmented reality karts using a Nintendo Switch.
